Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Two New Shops at the Cotton Exchange: Silverhammer Design, LLC & Set Free


Wilmington, NC- Wilmington Downtown, Inc. (WDI) will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for two new shops located inside the Cotton Exchange at 312 Nutt Street.  The event will be held on Monday, September 30 at 12:30 p.m. and will feature Mayor Bill Saffo and other dignitaries.

After moving from the Charlotte, N.C., area last winter, they thought the time was right to add a retail component to their business.
